On US coins, along with an image, is the name of its owner, Liberty. You probably thought it had something to do with the democratic concepts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but it has to do with the one who owns the money -- the goddess Liberty.

You can call money anything you want, and some do: bread, bucks, dough, frog skins, jack, lettuce, lucre, mammon, and moolah, to name some.  And as it is common to have slang terms for money, it is also common for money to have an image and a superscription: the name of the owner engraved or printed on it.  When asked if one ought to pay money, taxes, to Caesar, the Lord Jesus Christ first asked whose image and name was on the coin.  When they answered, “Caesar’s” he said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” (Matthew 22:17)   In his teaching, paying taxes was, and is, a matter of giving back to Caesar what already belongs to him.  After all, Caesar made the money and put his name on it, and if the so-called almighty dollar is your god, then Caesar is your god, too.

The term Caesar was used in a generic sense, and can represent any ruler with his image and identification on the cash.  Perhaps you have noticed Elizabeth II’s mug on many of Great Britain’s coins, and her name is stamped on them, meaning it belongs to her. Other monarch’s and dictators follow this practice as well, but the UK’s paper money has a name that supersedes the queen’s name, “The Bank of England.”  In other words, the coins may belong to the queen, but the big bucks belong to the bank. This principle is true in America also.  On US coins, along with an image, is the name of its owner, Liberty.  You probably thought it had something to do with the democratic concepts of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but it has to do with the one who owns the money – the goddess Liberty.  (If that’s a bit too much for you to take in right away, give yourself a little time to reflect, and maybe you’ll come to your senses.  Do your research.)  There are other images and superscriptions on coins, but they are all a part of the same cabal, but the names have been changed to protect the guilty. On the US bills are images, too, but Liberty’s name is absent.  Instead, if you look at the top of the primary side, you’ll find who really owns the dough, the note, the Federal Reserve, a private banking concern.  And the truth is, whoever owns the nation’s money, owns the country as well - or not so well.  

Of course, all this business about who the loot belongs to is a sad note for those who think the money in their pocket, and in their bank account, belongs to them.   It ain’t yours!  It belongs to someone else, and they let you use it, having trained their Pavlovian pups to covet, love, and cherish mammon flavored biscuits.  They have also taught those who have a house mortgage to call themselves “homeowners.”  In reality, one doesn’t own it if one is paying on it, but the bank likes you to think you do because it makes you feel good.  Then for the next twenty or thirty years, you pay on your mortgage several times moreover in interest, property tax, insurance, and upkeep.  But feel good or feel bad about that fact, the borrower is subject to the lender, as a slave is subject to the master. The wisest man in the world said, “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7)  Believing one is a homeowner when you have a mortgage is like believing your mother when she says you’re beautiful, but you are really on this side of ugly.  

Also, did you know when one signs the mortgage, they sign a “Death Pledge.”  Yep, that’s what it means.  Mort, as in Morgue, and Mortuary, means death; and gage means to pledge; and the only way you can get out of your mortgage, the death pledge, is if you pay off or die.  Therefore, you will have to remit or croak until you’re broke.  Another point about your house, paid for or not is, you only rent the land it sits on from the state, and the rent is called “property tax.”  Stop paying the rent, and your terra  firma is handed back over to the government, along with the house you paid for.  But that doesn’t happen too often if you have a mortgage because the bank will take their house back, and resell it, while eating up your equity by the due process of law called “foreclosure.” These are just a few uncomfortable principles you may have not considered.

Now, also, consider Revelation Chapter 13, and you may gain some new insight into the spirit of the Beastly Buck already at work in the world today, especially verses 16 and 17,  “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Look closely at the whole chapter, and gain some spiritual riches about the medium of exchange you hold in your hand.  But if Chapter 13 leaves you with a mental deficit, maybe it’s because you are serving mammon instead of God.  In that case, repent of your sin, take up your cross and follow the Lord Jesus. Then you will have treasures in heaven, a mansion which no bank can foreclose on, and will produce eternal dividends and interest forever.  (Luke 10:21)  Following the Lord Jesus Christ will be the sweetest deal you’ll ever make.

So, until we meet again, remember, God loves you.  Read your Bible.
